We make a habit of evaluating/rating every campground we utilize, and storing the information for just these occasions.
With the understanding that everyones' rating system and priorities are different, I'll just give you what we have. We stayed there for a week in July 2 years ago. Our average rating for ALL campgrounds is about about 6.5 on a scale of 10. We rate as follows:
Laundry - 1
Restrooms - 2
Sites - 3
Amenities - 2
Modem - 1
Location - 1
We rated this park at a 9.5, one of only 2 out of MANY. Here's why, from our notes:
Park is large, well maintained, state park like setting. Sites well spaced. Quiet, some shade trees at sites, park well wooded. Bathrooms/showers/laundry are an easy short walk. Trash receptacles located all over in the form of lined barrels and a dumpster available at the bathhouse. Tennis courts, pool, small store all located a 2 minute drive or a 20 minute walk from the end of the park. Modem available after 4 pm daily at the front gate. No insect problems, nice area for walking. A great place to stay.
Understand, that we much prefer settings like that, as opposed to the sterility we find in a paved, manicured, country club one. We stay in those parks as a result of memberships in several resort affiliations, but much prefer a more natural setting. One of the reasons that we gave this park such a high rating is that, for our tastes, this one is a perfect combination of amenities and setting.
Hope this helps, but things can change rapidly in this industry, and 2 years can be a long time. Hope they haven't changed too much. We'd like to get back there one of these days.
